While Xu Xialing assumed control of the family business in Marvel Studios Shang Chi, and the Legend of the Ten Rings, her brother Shang Chi has taken over the evil empire of their father. As you can see, there are issues among the other family members with his management.
On February 2, ShangChi #8 (opens in new window) Shang-Chi finds himself in the middle of a family feud that is worse than any Steve Harvey could imagine. His maternal grandfather Chieftain Xin and his sister Zhilan (Sister Staff) are the only people they want to control.
Even Esme, his sister (Sister Dagger), who is based on his MCU sister Xu Xialing, doesn’t believe he’s suitable for the role – but she’s loyal and will do whatever it takes to fill the role.
